Matt Sorum says that Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich helped him land his previous gig drumming for Guns N' Roses by passing along his phone number to Slash.
The former Guns N' Roses drummer made the comments this past Saturday (December 26th) when he took to social media to wish Ulrich a happy 57th birthday.
Sorum shared a photo of himself with Lars and wrote, "Happy Birthday to my pal of 31 years Lars Ulrich.. We met when The Cult opened the Justice For All tour and spent many nights on the road together living the life of Rock N Roll. The Cult did close to 6 months on that tour and the adventures were insane and are still with me to this day.
"After that we remained close as Lars was the one that gave Slash my phone number to get in GNR. Of course the Epic GNR , Metallica Stadium tour was legendary.
"Besides all of the musical accolades most importantly he has always been there as a friend . @larsulrich @metallica".
